Flitting Here and There

Flitting Here and There - This fortnights challenge at Creative Card Crew is "Spring." I don't know what your weather is like, where you live, but I am starting to see buds on the trees and we are having thunder storms. 

With that said, we are gearing up for tornado season. After last May, I am finding myself getting nervous and really paying attention. If you did not pick up on what I am referring to, I live in Moore Oklahoma, where a F-5 tornado ripped through last May, taking out 2 elementary schools among other things. My grandson was in 1 of those 2 schools and 7 children from his school did not survive. 

We are sponsored by Marianne Designs and Lacy Sunshine. My image is Lacy Sunshine's Sky Lynn. She is a really sweet image. I colored Sky Lynn with Copic's. I added Stickles to the trim and belt of her kimono. I also added Stickles to the butterflies.

My DP is MME Collectable Notable. I love the citrus colors in this pad. I added some butterflies using orange card stock in an ombre' fashion. I used a variety of butterfly punches and used Stickles and pearls on them.

My sentiment and punches are SU.
